Mars in astrology represents our will to act. It shows what are needs our and how we go about getting them met.

The Sun and Mars are both masculine planets in the sense that they are outward and movement-oriented, but the Sun is more what we want to get noticed for and receive recognition for. Mars is more about how we go about getting our bills paid and getting our needs met.
